been lost on his opponents. >> it is no longer used in a responsible way to govern. it is used as a reckless and relentless tool to grind all business to a halt. the american people deserve better than politicians who run for election telling them how terrible government is and devoting their time in elected office to make government not work as often as possible. >> the move comes as republicans have built up a filibuster fortress most recently blocking three of the president's nominees to the d.c. circuit court of appeals. not because they're not qualified but because he nominated them. it is part of an explosion in obstructive tactics never before seen in the history of the nation. >> some 230 plus years there have been 168 fill busters of executive and judicial nominations. half occurred during the obama administration. mr. president, 230 plus years, 50%. >> just on the d.c. circuit court senator reid pointed out republicans have blocked 4 of 5 obama nominees while democrats affirmed 4 of 6 bush nominees but if you ask senate minority leader mitch mcconnell it's all part of

to get us home from afghanistan, promised most of all to abort a war with iran. and now he's gone and done it. and we've got the makings of a deal with tehran. to stop explosive conflict. he's done what he's promised. the total opposite of "w" and dick cheney and the neocons. thank god we're at least trying to do the right thing. and the biggest news is that elections do count. candidate obama said he'd change the direction of foreign policy. now he's done what he said he would. tonight we see the lines of battle on every front. obama's trying peace, the other side pushes towards war. obama's party is pushing for democracy in the u.s. senate, the other side hugs the filibuster and the ready chance for default. obama's trying to provide health care for the 40 million uninsured, the other side proposes nothing while ted cruz, of course, proposes nothing but war at home and abroad. yes, on a clear day like today, you can see forever. and what a choice between obama and his enemies. make your pick. howard fineman of "the huffington post" media group, david corn for mother jones magazi

by reiterating his intent to do something that the u.s. had all but abandoned, practice diplomacy. >> if george bush and john mccain have a problem with direct diplomacy led by the president of the united states, then they can explain why they have a problem with john f. kennedy, because that's what he did with khrushchev, or ronald reagan, because that's what he did with gorbachev, or richard nixon, because that's what they did with mao. that's the choice in this election. >> after just nine months as president, obama was awarded the nobel peace prize, but in his first five years, much of his foreign policy has been dominated by the wars he inherited, his expansion of the global war on terror has made his supporters uncomfortable and earned disingenuous praise from former bush acolytes. >> the obama administration has clearly reached the point where they've agreed they need to be tough and aggressive in defending the nation and using some of the same techniques that the bush administration did. >> at times during the obama presidency, the possibility of direct talks with iran, once a central f

us this hour. in the 2012 presidential campaign, one of the big questions that sort of bedevilled the romney campaign was the issue of mitt romney's personal tax returns. they wanted to base the romney campaign in part on his success as a business man, but didn't want to release any of his tax returns, which would show that information in great detail. just got hammered over the tax returns issue for months. and when they finally decided they were going to release one single year ofitt romney's tax returns, they did it in september and they did it late in the day on a friday afternoon. and that was not a coincidence. the george w. bush administration, the obama administration, really lots of presidents have shown a pronounced tendency to release the white house salary lists late in the day on friday. the obama administration announced they would keep the george w. bush military tribunals going in an announcement they made late in the day on a friday. when chris christie decided to veto the .50 caliber gunman he suggested in new jersey, he announced it, say with it me now, late in

openly like this tells us that a new ugliness has come to right wing discourse. howard fineman is editorial director for the huffington post media group. david corn is the washington bureau chief for mother jones. both are values msnbc political analysts. let's listen to dick cheney, here it is at his current worst. >> we look at the mess that has been created out of obama care by the president having said, you can keep your policy if you like it, you know, guaranteed, period. that turns out that was a lie. and he repeated it over and over and over again. >> cheney's not alone. another former gop heavyweight, if you will, mitt romney called the president a liar during an interview on "cbs this morning." >> the real problem that the president has is a broken promise. it's dishonesty. and that's of course, what's really striking at the heart of this. >> let me go to howard on this one. it seems to me that one thing we know and the discourse we have here on this program and everywhere else in the country is if you call someone a liar, using that word, saying they lie, it's sort of

"all in with chris hayes" starts right now. >>> good evening from new york. i'm chris hayes. we are coming off a truly historic weekend during which the president of the united states, on short notice, late on a saturday night addressed the nation live from the white house to announce the outline of an interim deal with iran, a deal to cap its current nuclear program and move towards a full diplomatic solution between the two nations. this is the biggest development in the relationship between the two countries in 35 years. what the president announced this weekend was the fulfillment of a promise a long time in the making. >> i reserve the right as president of the united states to meet with anybody at a time and place of my choosing if i think it's going to keep america safe. >> in 2008, then senator obama said he would do something no president has done since 1979, speak directly to the leaders of iran. it became a central issue of the campaign. >> it's hard to see what such a summit with president ahmadinejad would actually gain except an earful of anti-sem

'm bill o'reilly, thanks for watching us tonight. pardon my voice this evening. aerials again and the frog is back. such is life. president obama and a new jobs controversy. that is the subject of this evening's talking points memo. "new york post" reporting that job numbers during last year's presidential campaign were manipulated to the president's favor by people in the census bureau which is responsible for the stats. the white house quickly denied any wrongdoing. >> that story is obviously misleading. i think a lot of people shed a lot of credibility engaging in conspiracy theories last fall without, you know, rigged jobs numbers. i have to tell you as somebody who has been here for a long time one month after month after month the jobs numbers came in and then later were revised upward, sure didn't feel like they were helping us. >> however, president obama did use the job numbers in question on the campaign trail. >> this morning we found out that the unemployment rate has fallen to its lowest level since i took office. [cheers] >> on friday, we found out the unemployment rate has f
